  1. Steam the potatoes for 15-20 mins or until cooked.

  2. Heat 1 tbsp oil in a non-stick pan. Add the onions and peppers, then cook for about 10 mins until soft. Push the peppers to the side of the pan and add the chorizo, sizzling until cooked though and releasing its oils. Transfer to a plate.

  3. Once cool enough, halve the potatoes. Heat 1 tbsp oil in another non-stick pan and tip in the spuds. Fry for about 10 mins until golden and beginning to crisp. Stir in the onion mix, heat through and season.

  4. Meanwhile, in the onion pan, fry the eggs to your liking. Place them on top of everything, allowing 1 egg per person.

Beautiful Easter brunch. Added garlic, smoked paprika and chilli flakes.

Delicious! Added cooked potatoes to the onion and chorizo pan so they weren’t crispy but I don’t think that’s a problem. 2 eggs each

Perfect quick dish. I add parsley and a bit of garlic as well.

Lovely recipe but I think I'll try adding half a tin of chopped tomatoes next time as I found it a bit dry.

This is delicious, and can include other elements, like butter beans. In Spain, we cook this as a casserole, and towards the end we add the eggs to the top of the casserole, so they cook on the surface.

Love this recipe..definitely a breakfast for dinner dish. My family love it. I always do 2 eggs each and more potatoes!!! I add chilli and some parsley sometimes. I've also made it with corned beef instead of chorizo. Sometimes added sweetcorn or mushrooms. Making it again tonight.

Add a pinch of cumin and a pinch of smoked paprika when frying the onions and pepper for authentic Spanish flavour. The Unearthed brand of chorizo (sold at Waitrose) is expensive but worth it for the flavour. Some cooking chorizos can be disappointing.

I added a pinch of smoked paprika and a pinch of cumin for authentic, Spanish flavour. Yum!
